Another Policeman charged in driver’s licence scam; granted $1.2M bail
A Sergeant attached to the Guyana Police Force was on Monday charged with forging several questionnaires of the Learner Driver Theoretical Examination.
Alfred Park, 50, appeared before City Magistrate Judy Latchman and was slapped with 13 charges.
It is alleged that on April 12, 2018, at the Felix Austin Police College, Georgetown, he conspired with others to forge 13 questionnaires of persons who did not write the examinations.
Park was represented by Attorney-at-law Patrice Henry. He was released on $1.2M bail and the matter is adjourned to August 27.
Three weeks ago, Corporal Ryan Gray, 25, and Woman Corporal Shanice Fraser, 31, [who worked as the Confidential Secretary to the Traffic Chief] appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and were charged in connection to the same allegations.
Gray was slapped with 20 counts of forgery and was released $160,000 bail while Fraser was charged with 18 counts and was released on $150,000 bail.
According to reports, the three officers were responsible for invigilating the exams on the day in question.
Some 174 persons were registered to write the examination but only 106 showed up. However, once the exams were over, 207 scripts were submitted.
